The Russian imagination is alive and well and you'll see its culinary expression on a visit to one of St. Petersburg's many fun restaurants. Federico Fellini's Cinema Restaurant is an unabashed display of cinema-buffery, with dining areas done up to resemble film sets, menus stuck on film cans and waitstaff dolled up as starlets. You'll feel well and truly stateside when you step into the California Grill, where you'll get an eager welcome in English from the waitresses. Koshkin Dom (Cat House) is decorated in the latest Russian kitsch (think multicolored cut-out cats) and it's a good place for dropping in if you need a light snack to insulate yourself against the cold. Valhall is all its name suggests: a cellar bar in the center of the city designed with a Viking theme and full of scantily clad waitresses. Picasso has an interior inspired by the works of the abstract master and a Spanish-themed menu. You'll be surprised and delighted by any of the places on our list of fun restaurants in St. Petersburg.
